Believe Big primary final 2019
Well done to the teams from our Trust Primary schools who came up with some really innovative ideas to present in the final of this year’s Believe Big competition.
Many of the teams came up with philanthropic ideas to help the homeless, the vulnerable or the environment. The winners, Team Pollen from Beanfield, presented ways of combatting pollen using filters, medicines and other means.
David James, Lead Facilitator from 7 Billion Ideas led the finals: He said: ‘The children have got so much out of it already. These are children who are creating ideas, seeing those ideas recognised. What we hope now is that they take their ideas and thought processes back into the schools and encourage other children to do it as well. I am hoping to see a lot of these children in the secondary competition in four or five years. What is important is that it is a whole school process. Everyone in that school has developed ideas for the Believe Big project.’
The judges comprised Leyton Smith, Brooke Weston Trust’s Primary Executive Principal, Corby Business Academy’s Principal Simon Underwood, Angela Reynolds, Principal of Corby Technical School and Debbie Tysoe, the Trust Finance Director.
Announcing the winners Mr Smith told the students: ‘I think every one of you who has contributed to today has done amazingly well. That medal that you are wearing around your necks says that you have put in a huge effort. I honestly don’t know where you get your ideas from. They are unbelievable. The creativity that you show, the posters you have designed and the way you have presented yourselves today has been really impressive. The judges found it incredibly difficult to decide on the results.’

1st: Team Pollen from Beanfield
2nd: Homeless Helper from Gretton
3rd: Trans2019 from Oakley Vale
